islamic revolutionary guard corps. hillary clinton a couple years ago said iran was edging close league to be in the military to peter should. i wonder when marina talks about this long history of abuse of political prisoners by the agents of that abuse had changed over this 20, 30 year span and whether the increased role has an impact on the human rights landscape. is the power of military know me making matters worse? >> thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. and thanks to ftd for arranging a panel discussion about human rights. it's rather interesting that in the city in washington d.c., most panels about iran are about the nuclear program. that is almost nothing that the human rights program. the iranian audience in the reading public because it means you care about your own security. you care about the implications of the islamic republic coming into an armed state. what happens in iran does not really matter to washington. this is the signal washington has been sending to iran and i think this panel and ftd's initiative to make human rights issue a more important issue on agen

become impossible to achieve. yesterday i said to secretary clinton that such an effort led by the u.s. would need to be more intense than anything seen since the oslo peace accords and it should be backed by a more active role for european nations as well. give in the overriding need for both israelis and palestinians to return to to negotiations as soon as possible, we as palestinian president mahmoud of boston not move the resolution of the u.n. general assembly for the time being. our view was that it would be better to give you is that epogen due to set out a new initiative. he pointed out a u.n. resolution would be depicted by some as a move away from bilateral negotiations with israel and we are also concerned about the considerable financial risks to the palestinian authority at a time when their situation is art of precarious if they vote led to a strong backlash in the u.s. political system. nevertheless present abbas has decided to press ahead, decision we must respect. no one should be any doubt that he is a courageous man of peace. are central objective remains that of

are said to to human rights abuses in a number of countries. secretary of state clinton has made empowering women and important part of her diplomatic priorities and i support her efforts. for the united states who do not need to implement additional legislation in order to be in full compliance with the convention. laws such as the civil rights act, title ix strength in the u.s. position in the convention and our leadership could lead to other countries adopting similar protections for disabled women. most importantly i'm reminded of the veterans who have returned from the wars in iraq and afghanistan. the brave veterans who served in all the places we've asked them to go, who advance the interest and ideals of the united states. we owe them a debt for their service. any return with severe burns, some requiring lifetime care. i would like to just read a statement from one of the veterans that appeared in front of the foreign relations committee, and disabled marine veteran john kerry. this is what he said. and i quote here in 1968 i arrived in the non-assigned to first battalion

obstruction with the clintons who reached out all the time. so i think that is a factor, but a minor one. i think harry reid use of filling the amendment tree and partly this is chicken and egg, but it's been done too much and that did result in at least some protest and willingness some senators on his side who might not otherwise join in some of these filibusters to do so. but it had much more to do with a concerted party strategy, which is really the first time we've seen it. >> i think there's two separate issues. one obstruction on nomination in two, obstruction on the legislative side. on the nomination cited is true you see these judge those conoco 99 to one. i think it's important to remember what we are talking about. the alternative is to move it by unanimous consent. this is not like the house where there's about. if a member of checks to unanimous consent because they do not want to vote or be forced to vote for a judge within the main support, they say i will have a roll call. the majority leader at that point can schedule the rollcall or not. many times he doesn't receive the
